Vegan Gado Gado Recipe

Vegan Gado Gado

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 2

True to its name Gado-Gado, which means ‘mixed-mixed’ in Indonesian, is a bowl of sweet, spicy and savoury flavours, greens and textures coming together to make a deliciously healthy salad. This salad bowl usually consists of raw, slightly boiled, blanched or steamed vegetables,  hard-boiled eggs, boiled potato, fried tofu, tempeh, and lontong, served with a generous drizzle of peanut sauce. In our vegan take on the dish though, we leave out the eggs and top the salad with Boombay’s 100% plant-based Peanut + Lime Dip & Spread.

Chef’s note:

  • Gado Gado is a hearty salad that is not only a perfect main course for one but is also a great outdoor potluck or picnic spread to enjoy with some rice. 
  • Served at room temperature, the dish can sit well dressed for up to 60 to 90 minutes.
